Force of Nature  is a documentary featuring the renowned improvising dance artist Kirstie Simson.

Force of Nature combines specially filmed performance, documentary footage and in-depth interviews with Kirstie, in which she talks about her life-long practice, and her passionate belief in the power of dance to bring people together and transform lives.

Kirstie Simson has been a continuous explosion in the contemporary dance scene, bringing audiences into contact with the vitality of pure creation in moment after moment of virtuoso improvisation. She is an award-winning dancer and teacher who has "immeasurably enriched and expanded the boundaries of New Dance". according to Time Out Magazine, London.
